Updated (2/24/15): The Kickstarter is now over and Exploding Kittens raised a total amount of $8,782,571. That's a TON of money. It's not the highest-earning Kickstarter project ever, but it does have the highest number of individual backers with 219,382. This article originally referred to Exploding Kittens as the "biggest-earning" Kickstarter project ever, and has been edited to correct the error.
What does the Coolest Cooler, Reading Rainbow and a card game about exploding kittens have in common? They're all in the top ten most-funded Kickstarters ever. But I have a feeling that the card game is going to give Reading Rainbow a run for its money.
Matthew Inman, better known as the creator of the Web comics called The Oatmeal, teamed up with Elan Lee and Shane Small to bring a new card game to life. They dubbed it "Exploding Kittens." Yes, "Exploding Kittens." But don't worry, there's a kid-friendly version!
Inman created a Kickstarter project to fund his idea to the tune of $10,000. He had it in minutes. Now, with 22 days still left to go in the funding window, it's the most-backed Kickstarter project of all time.
